Today we will be focusing on clinical reasoning, organization and communication skills necessary for life on the wards: developing assessments and plans, figuring out how to create and prioritize a to-do list, answering pages and giving handoffs. It will be a packed day, just like a day in the life of an intern!
- “Collaboration between hospital pysicians and nurses: An integrated literature review” by Tang C
- “Why doesn’t medical care get better when doctors rest more?” by Lisa Rosenbaum from the New Yorker
- “When patient handoffs go terribly wrong” by Pauline Chen from the New York Times
- “Patient handoffs: Pediatric resident experiences and lessons learned” by McSweeney M
Watch the brief videos below and reflect on the where communication went well and where there was opportunity for improvement. (Yes, the acting is Oscar worthy.)
